Angry Ugly seams show after applying primer

Help! Has anyone sanded down primer and drywall compound to reduce the appearance of uneven seams? After painting what looked to be a smooth sanding job - my butt joints are noticeable. All factory joints turned out well. Any ideas how to fix?

Once, I completely forgot to sand a joint (out of 28 joints and one I just skipped!) and I primed it and let it set for a couple of days before I realized my error.

I simply sanded through the primer (I think you have 30 days before it's permanently set) and then sanded as usual.

The best easiest way is to put more mud over the bad joint. Make sure you put enough on either side (at least 12 inches) to feather the joint. If it is just a case of a sharp edge showing you can try to sand through the primer but still use some more mud to smooth out the edge.
